  • as much as she wants too. when she roots, shes hungry, and she will eat until shes not hungry anymore.

  • On demand for breastfed babies.


    Formula fed babies should not be fed on demand. Babies can't regulate how much they eat at the bottle. Everything is different about artificial feeding. There are charts that tell you how much to feed by weight or age and your doctor should have told you. Mothers feeding babies "as mush as they want" is the reason there are so many overweight and obese babies that become overwieght and obese kids with health problems.

  • If its formula its 2 to 2.5oz per pound of body weight per 24 hours. So 22 to 27.5oz in 24 hours for an 11lb baby.
